Introduction Thanks for visiting the site and thanks for wanting to get to know about the site. Some time ago when it was learned that ESPN was getting a slice of the NASCAR T.V. pie, ESPN/ABC named Brent Musberger as its studio host and the man who would guide the World Wide Leader through the uncharted waters of stock car racing. When questioned about his qualifications of being the network's point man in covering NASCAR, Musberger somewhat defensively responded that he has had a lot of contact and interaction already with fans of the sport and in fact, has had ".... beers with that demographic." Something about that quote cracked me up. Was it the fact that he felt compelled to point out that he was gettin' likker'd-up with red state rabble? Was it the clinical condescension in referring to the people he was trying to get down with as merely a "demographic"? Probably both. I dunno - it was amusing and it appeared to encapsulate what I want to do and that is present and comment upon a broad cross-section of life here in America…. Some sports, a little culture and yeah, some politics. Thanks again for stopping by. Dean
